Western Toad - North America
Anaxyrus boreas also Bufo boreas
RECOMMENDED FOR AUDIENCES:
1 - 100 YEARS OLD
Their diet consists largely of bees, beetles, ants, and arachnids.
Females lay up to 17,000 eggs stuck together in strings that adhere to vegetation and other objects along water edges. Metamorphosis is usually completed within 3 months after egg laying.
Because of their short hind legs, toads in general tend to walk or hop rather than jump.
